Kid’s Easter Craft DIY: How to Make a Cute Easter Nest from a Paper Bag

This cute little Kid’s Easter craft is a perfect DIY for even the littlest kiddos in the family.  It’s a great craft for your nursery school or preschool classes too.  I love that it only requires a couple of easy to find supplies (most of which you probably already have on hand) and it will get you out exploring the neighborhood looking for sticks and twigs to build your nest.  Unlike most crafts that come home, sit on the counter for a few days and then head to the trash, this cute kid’s Easter craft can be displayed all spring long.  There are affiliate links in this post for your convenience.  You can read my full disclosure policy here.

Materials:

Paper Lunch Sacks

Hot Glue

Glue Gun (I like to use one of these.  The glue doesn’t get as hot as my industrial strength gun, so it is safer for the kids to use)

Twigs and sticks from the yard

Pom Poms (this is the size we used)

Feathers

Googly Eyes

Black Construction Paper

Directions:

To make the nest, simply let the kids roll down and scrunch up the top of their lunch sacks.  Let them decorate their sacks with the sticks and twigs and glue to make it look like a nest on the outside of the bag.  Fill the nest with the remaining twigs. (You don’t need to glue these down.)

For each bird the kids will need 2 feathers, a pom pom, 2 google eyes and a paper beak. It’s fun to watch the kids pick out the pieces and customize their own bird.  They turn out so cute!  Glue the feathers, eyes and nose to the pompom to create a cute bird.  Place the bird in the nest and you are all set.

This would be a great activity to keep little hands busy while they wait for an egg hunt, or Easter dinner.  They would be darling on a kid’s table as well.  Let the kids make them and then decorate their place settings with their own bird and nest.

You can make a more sophisticated version for the adult table by replacing the birds with some of my favorite Easter treats…chocolate eggs!
